Lakeland flagship store, Windermere, Cumbria
The building provides a large retail sales area in a tall and light-filled space at ground floor with a restaurant-quality cafe at first floor.
This project was awarded a Civic Trust Award in 2007. The awards jury report described the project as...."An attractive and successful project which combines exciting and contemporary design with the building's location in the historic and rural setting of the Lake District. The large semi-circular frontage makes a strong visual statement in glass, metal, marble and Lakeland stone, which welcomes and draws in the visitor. The curved sedum covered roof helps it to blend into the landscape and reflects the surrounding mountains and hills. Access has been a consideration throughout the design. This building sets a standard for contemporary intervention in a highly sensitive landscape".
"One of the best modern buildings in Cumbria" is how the building is described in 2010 edition of the highly respected 'Pevsner Architectural Guide - The Buildings of England'
